Q.

I am looking for affordable conveyancing. How do we get a quote?

A.

Many solicitors offer cheap conveyancing quotes, however extra fees are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. These terms are often ignored by excited sellers and buyers, eager to get underway. Any additional charges which are listed in the terms should be fair.

Q.

My mortgage lender will be Yorkshire Bank - what will I need to be aware of?

A.

Purchasers should know that some lenders are now reducing their 'solicitor panel'. This can mean increased conveyancing costs for purchasers. Homeward Legal will act for many lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's legal costs.

Q.

What sort of additional enquiries in connection with the risk and history of local flooding around Haringey will my Hornsey conveyancing solicitor look over?

A.

A key part of the conveyancing protocol of buying a property involves your lawyer conducting conveyancing and environmental searches that set out certain details with respect to Hornsey historical flood risk. An inexpensive (around twenty pounds) and more detailed

flood risk search, such as the Homecheck search, could possibly be recommended by your Hornsey lawyer if the results of the initial searches highlight any risk of flooding.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Hornsey?

A.

Hornsey is located in London Borough of Haringey Council, Civic Centre, High Road, Wood Green, London, N22 8LE, Call: 020 8489 0006

Q.

Does your solicitors company advise on the conveyancing of auction properties in Hornsey?

A.

Our company is able to act on residential property auction procedures. It is not uncommon for unusual auction lots for example development properties, are purchased at auction and these require increased review before buying. Lawyers therefore strongly encourage buyers at auction to decide on a lawyer well before the auction for a thorough review of the legal papers for the lot.

Subsequently, immediately after the actual auction your chosen conveyancing lawyer is utterly able to concentrate on speedily completing the transaction in a as tight time frame as typically required .

Q.

Are there many designated conservation areas in the area?

A.

Conservation areas qualify neighbourhoods of historic or architectural significance. You may wish to contact the local council for further information, but your property solicitor will investigate the impact of conservation areas or other planning restrictions.

Q.

How is Hornsey contaminated land identified when purchasing?

A.

Several contaminants has the potential to affect residential property in Hornsey . Contaminants including existing and proposed overhead electricity cables or infilled land will be detailed in an appropriate search.

Q.

We are purchasing a home in the parish of Mill Hill St Paul. Will a chancel search be necessary?

A.

Your solicitor instructed to handle the transaction may suggest that a chancel search be ordered, irrespective of the parish where the home being bought is found. In older areas of Hornsey, chancel repair may be imposed on the owners of a home where church councils may have not done so in the past. In the event that chancel liability may apply, your solicitor might recommend insurance rather than pulling out of the purchase.
